Project Description

The Fitness Calculator

An algorithm that is able to estimate the fitness age of a human body, based on a few easy accessible input variables. Fitness age is of great importance when evaluating the risk of cardiovascular disease and premature death in presumably healthy individuals.

The model is based on big data from the HUNT study, where 40 000 healthy individuals were followed for 20 years. The database is globally unique, and correlates lifestyle with cardiovascular diseases and premature death.
